New Boutique Haleluja Opens in Brussels: Where Ecology and Fashion Meet and Where Green Fashion is Fashion. If you’re headed on your european vacation this summer hipster here’s spot to check into and want to grab some Green Fashion. Roll with the new green wave. Make the eco-trend a way of life and shop consciously on vacation for a few key pieces for your wardrobe.
In recent years, a growing number of young fashion designers have set ecological awareness as high as quality and design in their work. A luxurious, provocative boutique has recently opened in the centre of Brussels based on these principals of sustainable fashion. This new boutique marries the once opposing fields of ecology and fashion.
The selected collections must be environmentally sustainable, but they approach this in a variety of ways: Some focus on using pure materials like organic cotton, wild silk, wool, soya, and milk, and no chemical treatments. Others focus on recycling garments, fabrics and other materials. All use environment-friendly production techniques.
All collections though are selected for their beauty and style. They prove that ecological and socially correct apparel can be cool, modern, and free of the typical eco cliché. Next stop on the EuroStar is Brussels and it’s just hours away from Paris. If you need more reasons why to stop in the new boutique Haleluja houses the collections of:
